drank Key Lime Pie by Della Terra Teas
293 tasting notes

If Lime Kool-aid were a tea, it’d be this tea. Yeah, Lime Chiffon is BETTER…. but this one has CAFFEINE. :D? I have a feeling this would make a great iced tea, too. Also, I was distracted on Ravelry and forgot this steeping & no harm done ;) ;) that’s always a plus, for me.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cavocorax

Ooooh Ravelry! :O I’ve been knitting up a storm – now I need to figure out how to switch colours or… well I hope I don’t ruin the whole thing. :P

I just added you on IG

Cavocorax BE BRAVE :P :P …I’m making hat. Shhh, it’s a Pikachu hat for the child ;)

TEB, sweet! ;)

Cavocorax

Oooh that’s awesome dude! How are you going to keep it secret?

Ozli

I just told him it’s a yellow hat – everything else adds on after ;)

drank Hawaiian Dreams by Della Terra Teas
293 tasting notes

I haven’t really liked this tea overall and have had it many times without rating it because I always think it should be amazing and then it’s not as coconut-fruity as I expect. I dunno what I did right today, but I really enjoyed my cup! Maybe it’s just a good day for DTT? A package from them was waiting in my mailbox, too!)

Cavocorax

Woo! New tea! Teas that are better than you expected! !!!’s all around.

Ozli

I was saving the rest for iced tea to try it out that way, I was so meh about that tea, but now…? I dunno man! Sometimes there’s a magic, I think. :P

Cavocorax

Totally! I’ve been having some tea blahs lately and now I’m afraid to rate things because normally I enjoy them more. Gonna go back to basic good teas before messing around with the fancy ones I’ve been trying.

drank Apricot by Murchie's Tea & Coffee

Had this yesterday, one of my fave Murchie’s teas. The flavouring just works so well with the black tea.

drank Blueberry Earl Grey by Ovation Teas
293 tasting notes

Tastes unlike Earl Grey and also unlike blueberries but isn’t bad – a little bitterish.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec
Cavocorax

I bought this because Ovation was closing and they were selling everything for like $1 an oz. I was hoping it’d be tasty but… meh.

Ozli

When I lived in Vic I used to get EG from Murchies and then steep it with whatever fruit tea I had around (which was a blueberry rooibos sometimes or a grapefruit herbal) and they were pretty yum – so this tea is definitely a good thought, but it fell flat, yep.

Cavocorax

That’s a good idea! I haven’t tried mixing anything around at all.

drank Strawberry Cream - fruit by Zen Tea
293 tasting notes

Violently pretty! I like this tea – it’s not super tart & the strawberries are really out there. Not creamy at all, to me. I’d like to try their black/strawberry next time, I think. Had this one late last night and got side-tracked with the child.. it was lovely cool in the morning, too. If strawberries didn’t trigger K’s oral allergy syndrome, I’d cold brew this with a bit of honey. Nom nom nom.

(It’s funny, looking at my last reviews of this tea, that I used to consider it more tart than I do now.. I wonder if my tastes have changed? Or was I just exaggerating?)

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cavocorax

Tart eh? I immediately thought – it must have hibiscus! And it does! So you’re probably right about it being tart, but I think iciing it/drinking it cool tames the hibiscus.

Cavocorax

All the cool kids hate hibiscus.

CrowKettle

I actually like iced hibiscus and will eat it, along with everything else, in a dry fruit blend. Clearly not a cool kid. :/

Ozli

Hahaha, I don’t mind it when it’s light-ish like this one. It’s definitely very pretty!

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA
293 tasting notes

Had the last of this last night. It’s such a unique tea – pepper, which I love… kinda like Jessie’s tea, which I was fascinated with by the novelty of ~lavender but didn’t actually LIKE (but still kept drinking).. I like this one a bunch more, but it’s still “like” through a mirror of weird fascination. :D

drank Swiss Mountain by Della Terra Teas
293 tasting notes

Tea break! I’ve been trying to force myself to use CLEANING THINGS as a coping skill for my stress and anxiety rather than avoidance and misery… it’s going okay so far, but I’m only an hour in. (Which is totally time for a break!)

I haven’t had this tea in a long time, and it’s one of my faves.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Cavocorax

Yes – thanks for the reminder! This is going back on the shopping list!

Ozli

Anti V-Day Treat still beats this one for me, but it is YUM.

Profile

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
